Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram)
Showing the connections between different components of same system you can make data flow diagram (DFD) to display the relationships and the interactions of different departments in the shop, for example. So making the DFD for the online store you have to mention all involved parties such as Administrator, Customer, Visitor, Manager, etc. To create this diagram can be much easier with help of the layouts from the libraries in the Solution Park. Using the existing examples from the libraries can simplify the work of drawing the needed flowcharts and diagrams for any kind of businesses.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to draw a simple and clear example of DFD for Online Store using special libraries, provided by Data Flow Diagrams Solution:
- Data flow diagram (DFD) library contains 15 symbols for drawing both context-level data flow diagram and Level 1 DFD.
- DFD, Gane-Sarson notation library contains 12 symbols of Gane-Sarson DFD notation.
- DFD, Yourdon and Coad notation library contains 22 symbols of Yourdon/DeMarco DFD notation.

To produce professional and standardized data flow diagrams, most analysts will turn to a specialist drawing software, that can automate certain processes and cater for presentation and file sharing needs. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Data Flow Diagram solution, is ideal for this scenario. Within the solution is a comprehensive vector stencil library, offering the full range of icons from both notation sets mentioned above. Features inherent to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make the diagramming process simple and efficient — one click commands allow users to select and place icons, intuitively place connector arrows, and share their document in a range of presentation modes or file types.
An added bonus is the wealth of learning material available, particularly in relation to data flow and process diagrams, and a number of other solutions that support similar topics.
Adding the Data Flow Diagram solution to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM gives you a powerful tool to help analyze and devise data flows for any business process or system.

If you ever tried programming, you could face a lot of problems as a beginner. To help yourself, create a flowchart to follow an algorithm logic. Flowchart represents a program as a sequence of steps depicted in special symbols for each type of action.
This image of the interactive diagram made in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM applying the Live Objects technology. The diagram shows the effect of Selection Sort algorithm. The left part of the chart is the input area. The diagram in the central part of the drawing is a flow chart showing of the selection sort algorithm. The flowchart includes basic flowchart symbols, that represent various stages of algorithm. The flowchart symbols are connected with arrows ended lines, that depict the direction of the process flow. On the right side — the result is displayed.
This sample shows the Flowchart of the ACC general account creation. This Flowchart describes the Start point, the process of the handling the user requests and the End point – creating of the account. The shapes represent the subprocesses and the arrows between the shapes shows the sequence of the actions.
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Flowcharts solution from the "Diagrams" area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Flow chart is a diagrammatic representation of an algorithm and essential part of planning the system. Flow charts are widely used in technical analysis and programming for easy writing programs and explaining them to others. So, one of the most popular type of flow charts is Technical Flow Chart.
Technical Flow Chart can be drawn by pencil on the paper, but it will be easier to use for designing a special software. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park will be useful for this goal.

Working with personnel might be difficult if you are not prepared enough. To explain your workers all the details of communication with customers, you can draw an order process flowchart which will describe every step of the process and answer all the questions that might appear. You can view a lot of business process mapping diagram examples here, in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This business process flow chart is created to illustrate the sample work order process. Before an organization can make some work for a person, the customer work order request must be completed. It is needed for tracking and accountability objectives. We used this business process flowchart to show a certain tasks and actions assumed by an organization. This flowchart depicts the outside inputs that are needed to launch a process, and ways the organization delivers its outputs. This business process flowchart was created with a help of ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution.

The Value stream is a totality of all actions on the projection, order composition and production: starting from creation a product project to launching this product, from order to delivery, from extraction of raw materials to ready product manufacturing. Value stream mapping is a process of visualization of these actions and creation of a detailed and graphical map.
